Samsung Releases Solar Powered Phone!

This solar-powered phone from Samsung is the holy green grail of gadgets for eco-fans. It seems that Samsung has finally delivered on this promise with their brand new Blue Earth phone. The phone stands to it's name. Blue Earth is a gorgeous green touch phone that has a full solar panel on its back which can generate enough power to charge the phone. The phone is small enough to fit in your pocket!

But this was not enough for Samsung. They are going above and beyond to achieve what they hope is the greenest phone on the market. The body of the phone is made out of recycled water bottles and has no brominated flame retardants, beryllium and phthalates - all incredibly toxic substances. The charger also meets high standby mode energy efficiency ratings.  

The device is set to be energy efficient, with a new user interface making it easy to activate the phone’s energy saving mode. Blue Earth also include CO2 emissions calculator, a pedometer and Samsung is aiming for minimal packaging made entirely from recycled paper.

The phone is available from February 16th at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
